Film synopsis

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido, a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens, she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past.

THE GOOD

This film was crazy good. I knew nothing about this film or it’s characters apart from what I’d seen in the trailers and I was massively impressed from start to finish. I would happily sit through it again, I enjoyed it that much.

A visual masterpiece that was surprisingly brutal in parts and fairly relentless throughout with some absolutely spectacular action sequences. It’s like a coked up Ready Player and will blow your God damned mind the same way.

THE Bad

Her eyes, man. I mean look at those weird things. I understand it’s to keep it’s Manga look and feel but they are very unsettling… and strangely seductive… anyone else getting a CGI lob on?

OUR SCORE : 9/10

I loved this film. It was crazy, had some mid blowing CGI and DC or Marvel need to hurry up and give Rodriguez a superhero movie asap!

What do the others say?

Don’t just take my word for it, have a look to see what the big players like Rotten Tomatoes (RT), IMBD and Metacritic are saying. The Making Of featurette on the right is awesome and a must watch.
